HOMELESS Winter Immersion Experience
& Sleep-A-Thon Fundraiser
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2023
FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH
1326 North 1st Street
An evening to provide greater understanding about what life is like for our unhoused neighbors camping rough in our community. Gather to share food and learn from speakers with life experience about winter survival, poverty, supports for vital needs, and how to face other challenges that living outside brings. Then, spend the night camping on the south lawn of the church. Come prepared for sleeping in really cold weather for one night and gain insight into the lives of our unhoused neighbors who make the outdoors into their bedroom every night.
If you cannot attend, you can still support by being a sponsor of someone who will camp out that night on site. Pledge an amount for each hour they stay or drop by that night and drop your money in the pot. Total donations will go to the United to Solve Homelessness Fund of United Way of Mesa County. You can get your ALL YOU GOTTA DO IS SLEEP Sponsor Form by picking one up at First Christian Church, or contact Pastor Kevin Arensman: 970-778-5473.
